Prince Amukamara not concerned about groin injury

Posted Aug 18, 2014

CB Prince Amukamra suffered a groin injury in Saturday night's win over the Colts

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Prince Amukamara thought he might undergo an MRI today on his injured groin. Instead, he was wearing pads at the Giants’ two-hour practice.

That might be a bit misleading, because the team’s right cornerback didn’t actually participate in the workout. But the fact that he was there was a good sign.

“I don’t know how good it is to have a corner with a strained groin, but he walked out here in pads,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “That told me something about where his mind is. He wants to get back out here and get going. Hopefully that will happen sooner than later.”

>> 7 TAKEAWAYS FROM GIANTS MEDIA HOUR

“I think the word I want to use is optimistic,” Amukamara said. “Definitely hopeful to play as soon as possible. … I definitely think that this is not one of those, ‘Uh, oh’ moments. I think I will be returning very, very soon.”

The fourth-year pro was injured early in the Giants’ 27-26 preseason victory Saturday in Indianapolis. He did not return to the game. Amukamara was examined this morning at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.  But he was not tested as extensively as he thought he would be.

“That’s another reason why I’m not concerned,” Amukamara said. “Because I didn’t have an MRI and they didn’t seem like it was that severe, and I don’t feel like it is either, just according to how I feel.”

The Giants, who next play Friday against the Jets, will not rush Amukamara back into preseason action. As Coughlin indicated, any leg injury can be problematic for a cornerback, so the team will ensure he is fully healed before returning him to the field.

>> FOUR GIANTS INJURED IN WIN OVER COLTS

“This is the first groin injury I’ve ever had in my life,” Amukamara said. “It almost feels like a hamstring. When I had it, anytime I had a hamstring, it feels like it stretches. I’ve had a hamstring where it just pops and then I had it to where it stretches and then it comes back. My groin, it came back and good thing it didn’t pop. Good thing it was an out route so I slowed it down and it wasn’t a go route. That’s why I don’t seem too concerned and I feel very hopeful. I can walk, I was able to jog and plant. Me and (coordinator of rehabilitation) Byron (Hansen) did an exercise after I did it, after I got injured, to where I’ll run three-quarter speed at him and he’ll move one way and I’ll have to react. I didn’t really feel anything with that movement. Stuff like that makes it very promising.”

In Amukamara’s absence, Trumaine McBride took most of the first-team reps at right cornerback.

  • After leading the Giants on a pair of long fourth-quarter touchdown drives in Indianapolis, Ryan Nassib was back working with the second team today, one week after he had switched places with Curtis Painter.

    “The thing I thought he (Nassib) did which really helped us, which we don’t have much of, is the quarterback starting to move sometimes, and many times the threat of him coming out of there,” Coughlin said. “All you have to do is look at the other team, including (Matt) Hasselbeck running up the sideline, 38 years old running up the field. That’s all you have to do, see it and know what that does to a defense if the quarterback can run. I think all those things helped.”

    >> OFFENSE KNOWS IT NEEDS WORK, BUT NOT PANICKING

  • Defensive tackle Mike Patterson and tight end Daniel Fells returned to practice. Wide receiver Trindon Holliday (hamstring) was in pads, but took no team reps.

  • Players missing practice included running back Peyton Hillis (ankle/foot), cornerbacks Jayron Hosley (foot) and Ross Weaver (ankle), tight ends Kellen Davis (Achilles strain) and Xavier Grimble (hamstring). and offensive linemen Charles Brown (shoulder) and James Brewer (back). Coughlin said Davis and Brewer should soon return to work.
